It rises at a point 1.289ft 393m above sea level near the 3 Shire Stone at the highest point of Wrynose Pass. The river descends to the sea over a course of about 15 miles 24km before entering the Irish Sea at the Duddon Sands. For its entire length the Duddon forms the boundary between the historic counties of Lancashire & Cumberland. Since local government re organisation in 1974 the Duddon has been in the county of Cumbria. The catchment area of the River Duddon includes a substantial part of the south western Lake District fells including the eastern slopes of Corney Fell, Ulpha Fell & Harter Fell the southern slopes of the mountains around the head of Langdale & the western slopes of Dunnerdale & Seathwaite Fells. From its source the Duddon falls rapidly over a distance of 2 miles 3.2km to Cockley Beck at the head of Dunnerdale. Close to the hamlet of Seathwaite the Tarn Beck from Seathwaite Tarn is subsumed. The river then takes a south westerly direction to Ulpha Bridge. Passing under the Duddon Valley Rd the river assumes a southerly course to Duddon Bridge where it is crossed by the A595 trunk Rd. After about a mile 1.6km the Duddon becomes tidal as it opens into the Duddon Estuary between Furness & south west Cumberland. DONT FORGET TO LET THEM KNOW WHERE YOU FOUND THEM www.carpinfo.co.uk
